ISPO: Elan by Porsche Design

The latest revolution from the award-winning team at Elan – the people that changed skiing forever by inventing carving – is set to turn the ski world on its head again. This on the heels of the optimal combination of free flex and power distribution with the integrated binding system Fusion and the combination of softer flex and stiff torsion with WaveFlex technology.

With Amphibio technology, Elan is the first to succeed in combining rocker and camber in one ski. Starting from the skier’s point of view, they first looked at the benefits from each of the ski profiles. Amphibio technology boasts designated left and right skis. The downhill ski features a cambered profile, ensuring massive grip and power, while the uphill ski features a rockered profile, bringing superb control and easy turning capabilities into the game. Here Elan has succeeded in developing skis without the need to compromise between edge grip and easy turning.

Elan has always paid close attention to design, and this time is no different, working in special collaboration with the world-renowned Porsche Design Studio. The studio provided Elan’s revolutionary skis with its signature visual style, emphasizing the technological, aesthetic and functional benefits of this innovative product.

Elan Amphibio – like driving a Formula 1, without the fear of ever losing control.
